As always, I sit down at my computer to check my emails and then write, and instead I find myself distracted by posts on social media. Today, another author had shared this ‘FEED THE AUTHORS’ image on Facebook, and I immediately felt guilty.
I check reviews on my novels every couple of days and I’m always delighted when a new review has been posted, even if it’s not glowing, as you can’t please all of the people etc. I’ve read many books that were, to me, simply ok – and a few that I hated. We all have different tastes. I felt very guilty that I hadn’t taken the time to review the many books I have read and enjoyed this year. I always click on the number of stars I feel appropriate at the end of an ebook, and then plan to do a written review next time I’m sitting with the laptop, but finalising The Making of Meredith and getting it published (and dipping in and out of Facebook and Twitter) has taken up most of my time and I simply haven’t done it.
So, here I am, I’m planning on doing at least three reviews a day until I catch up. As a result they won’t be in depth (they don’t have to be – a review is not an English assignment), but will give you my overview. I will make sure I publish them on Amazon and Goodreads, and of course share them with you. I hope you find something that takes your fancy.
An excellent start to the DI Hellier series. What begins as an apparent straight forward murder of a young girl, steps up a pace to reveal a much more horrific and far reaching crime, than Hellier’s team expected. I would have liked to have learned more about Hellier, so will have to buy the sequel to find out what happened in his past. Highly recommended. AND ONLY 99p at the moment – Grab a bargain quick!
A reasonable enough plot, and the introduction of Travis and Langdon, however unlike le Plant’s other works, I was able to dip in and out of this one when I had time, and would have like to have been more gripped. I will read the next Travis & Langdon outing as they do hold a certain promise.
This is the third book I’ve read by this author and he never fails to deliver a laugh out loud moment or two. Although I didn’t find this as entertaining as Love from Both Sides, which I loved, and the plot was a little predictable, I did enjoy it, and will read more of his work.
At least another three tomorrow – I will not hit social media until they are done!
